Pair return for Hammers

29 January 2010 02:37
West Ham manager Gianfranco Zola welcomes back midfielder Scott Parker and left-back Herita Ilunga for the Barclays Premier League match against Blackburn at Upton Park. Both players have recovered from hamstring injuries and should return to the starting line-up. Fit-again England striker Carlton Cole could start after playing the last 17 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Portsmouth in midweek but Danny Gabbidon, Guillermo Franco, Kieron Dyer (all hamstring), Zavon Hines and Luis Boa Morte (both knee) again miss out.
